    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    Last night I made a post about how i'm trying

    to form better sleeping habits and I made a night time / sleep schedule. I stuck to it last night and tested it out - and it worked better then I thought it was going to go for the first time! I got about 7 hours of sleep, and I feel so refreshed this morning. Better then I've...

    I love the night as its

    so quiet and peaceful. There is a beauty to the night that so many people do not see or experience. The only problem i have with being a night owl is that i can not stay awake during the day when i need to.

    I'm writing this at 2 AM,

    and I don't think I'll be going to bed any time soon. Sleep is for the weak or something, right?

    I love the tranquility of the nighttime.

    Everything just seems so peaceful. Sometimes I find myself sneaking out in the middle of the night just to go for a walk outside. (Only for my brother to blow up my phone texting me to come back inside) My favorite is when there's a full moon and it just kinda glows and lights...

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    Night time for me, can sometimes be negative

    and positive. My thoughts never seem to stop racing back and forth. I won't stop thinking even if I try distracting myself. But at other times, it is my meditation. It allows me to disappear into another dimension.
